This is a simple fresh green salad, tossed with seasonings.


Combine lettuce, hard-cooked eggs, pickles, tomatoes, and onion rings. Combine oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and seasoned salt; mix well. Pour oil mixture over lettuce mixture; toss lightly but thoroughly. Break raw eggs into lettuce mixture; toss until all traces of egg disappear. (The eggs can be optional, since there is a danger of salmonella). Makes 8 to 12 servings.
